Threads Run Tests to Make Posts Available on Other Social Media Platforms

Updated: Jan 5

[Edited] In a move to expand its reach and provide users with more options, Meta Platforms' Threads is set to run tests that will make posts from the microblogging platform available on other social media platforms, including Mastodon. This announcement was made by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday.

When Threads was launched in July, Meta had already expressed its plans to make the app compatible with open and interoperable social networks.

Now, the company is taking a step further by testing the integration of Threads with platforms that utilize the ActivityPub protocol.

Zuckerberg believes that making Threads interoperable will not only give users more choice in how they interact but also help content reach a wider audience. This move aligns with Meta's vision of creating a more connected and inclusive social media landscape.

Mastodon, known for its decentralized and user-driven structure, is often compared to Threads. It serves as an alternative to Elon Musk's social media platform "X," formerly known as Twitter. Mastodon operates on the ActivityPub framework, which allows users to build independent social media experiences.

In a statement released in July, Meta expressed its intention to work with ActivityPub to provide users with the option to stop using Threads and transfer their content to another service. This demonstrates Meta's commitment to user autonomy and data portability.

Since its launch, Threads has gained significant traction, surpassing 100 million sign-ups within just five days. The platform's popularity is expected to continue growing as it prepares to roll out in Europe this December, according to media reports.

The integration of Threads with other social media platforms through the ActivityPub protocol opens up new possibilities for users to engage with content and connect with a broader community. It also highlights Meta's dedication to fostering a more interconnected digital landscape.
